WeldCanada.com site is part of WeldCanada.com, Inc. incorporated in 2005
The main focus of WeldCanada.com is providing simple and unique welding software solution in compliance with the CSA, AWS, ASME, and API codes, for the benefits of welding and manufacturing industry. Users
can manage all their weld documents online
(WPDS, WPS, PQR, WPQ, WPQR, Welders Management Report),
and gain added information about the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) welding standards, the American Welding Society (AWS) welding codes, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) welding codes, and with future consideration of
The American Petroleum Institute (API)
WeldCanada.com welding software
currently supports a dozen of industry codes,
the CSA Structural Steel Welding Standards (CSA W47.1, CSA W47.2, CSA W59, CSA W59.2, CSA W48), the AWS Structural Steel Welding Codes (AWS D1.1, AWS D1.2, AWS D1.3, AWS D1.5, AWS D1.6, AWS D9.1, AWS D17.1), and the ASME
Boilers and Pressure Vessels, and Piping Codes.
WeldCanada.com's prequalified Welding Procedure Data Sheets (WPDS's) are complied with the requirements of either the CSA welding standards or with both the CSA and AWS welding codes. Therefore, many of the WeldCanada.com members are whether certified or on the process to become certified with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB Group), based on the requirements of the CSA W47.1, Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel and/or based on the requirements of the CSA W47.2, Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Aluminum.
WeldCanada.com and WPSAmerica.com members include certified fabricators with the
Canadian Welding Bureau
(CWB Group for companies certified to the CSA W47.1, CSA W47.2, CSA W178.1 or CSA W186), AWS, ASME, AISC, IBC, API and ISO, plus independent
Fortune 500 companies, NASA,
professionals, welding engineers, structural or mechanical engineers, welders, technicians, inspectors, welding supervisors, welding educators and students.
To learn more, please review Frequently Asked Questions
With 20 years of hands-on service in the industry, including 5 years assisting thousands of fabricators at the welding procedure department of the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB), I experienced that welding engineers and welding supervisors have to modify their Welding Procedure Data Sheets (WPDS), as well as their Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) more often, before final procedure approval. Companies were also asked to perform costly welding tests that could have been avoided, if welding procedure data sheet were submitted properly in the first place.
An unnecessary Procedure Qualification test Records (PQR), means a waste of material, labor and inspection costs, also waiting for welding procedure data sheet approval. Sometimes a company might lose a bid for a project that requires those approved welding document, right away.
The following are the most common reasons that Welding Procedure Data Sheets (WPDS) or Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) were not getting approval or have been called up for costly qualification testing:
-WPDS (WPS) doesn't comply with the minimum requirements of applicable standard (code).
-Lack of knowledge on how to prepare and submit WPDS and WPS properly in the first place. Please note that based on requirements of the CSA standard welding codes, a Welding Procedure Specification for each material groups and welding process must also be associated with the WPDS.
-Not recommending a right shielding gas considering the base materials, thicknesses, weld process and mode of metal transfer (short circuit, spray, globular, pulse) for a WPDS (WPS)
-Welding parameters are too high or too low in WPDS (WPS) for that specific application
-Don't know how to take advantage of prequalified welding joints of each the CSA welding standard (CSA W59) or the AWS welding codes (AWS D1.1, AWS D1.3, AWS D1.6)
Regarding to the last item above, there are still
who are not familiar with all aspects of a welding codes; for example, many of the welding tests (PQR) for welding of austenitic stainless steels could be avoided, by using and referring of welding procedure data sheets to prequalified welding joints of the AWS D1.6 Code.
WeldCanada.com superior welding software provides a unique and simple solution to prepare your weld documents (WPDS, WPS, PQR, WPQ, WPQR, and Welders Management Report), for any welding process or material in a few minutes; plus we created over 16,000 prequalified Welding Procedure Data Sheets (WPDS's) that are fully code-checked with the CSA welding standard or the AWS welding codes, literally.
What makes the WeldCanada.com unique and superior welding software:
-You are only required to have minimal computer knowledge to use this service.
-No need to download the software on your computer, log in and manage your weld document.
-WeldCanada.com online software supports more codes than any software company.
-Huge saving when using from over 16,000 CSA and AWS prequalified procedures, by take advantage of codes and avoid doing unnecessary costly tests. WeldCanada.com's prequalified welding procedures ease the complexity of development of weld procedures for structural steel applications of mild steels, low alloy steels and stainless steels (Plate, Pipe, Sheet, Box), in accordance with the CSA W59 welding standard and the AWS D1.1, AWS D1.3 and AWS D1.6 welding codes.
-While other welding software doesn't
automatically prepare a single welding procedure, WeldCanada.com offers over
16,000 procedures for the CSA and AWS codes,
as our special bonus to you, plus a superior welding software for the CSA Standards, the AWS and ASME codes.
-To make a better decision, there are instant code's rules for each essential variables, Guides and Built-in Tables in each forms (WPDS, WPS, PQR, WPQ, WPQR). The software also provides guides to choose right shielding gases, suggested welding parameters, and educational experts' welding presentations.
-The welding software provides no restriction for the user,
plus there is no company license fee or maintenance fee for the services. Our fee includes software upgrades, codes update, and is good for unlimited intra company use, available anywhere online.
-Superior welding software for the CSA and AWS structural steels welding codes (steels, stainless steels, aluminum, bridge, and more), as well as the ASME codes (pressure vessel, piping, boiler, power piping, process piping, and more).
